Default Brake controllers? Where to mount and what one to buy?

Need to get a brake controller in the 80. What recommendations do you have on the controller its self and where did you 80 owners mount them? I've seen the ashtray mount on MUD, not my cup of tea. Definitely not mounting at my knees.

I've thought about a ram mount up by the rear view mirror. Like many have done HAM remotes. I've also considered tearing one apart and running the controls to switches I can mount cleaner in the dash then hiding the unit under the dash somewhere. Probably a lot of work to just end up ruining a controller in the process.

Basically it needs to be accessible but I hate the look of the things bolted/hanging to the dash somewhere. My HAM remote is already in the center console backplate behind the shifters.
